yup, that was your turtles sex organs..
not sure exactly why they pull it out once in a while and it isn\'t for sure that it was a penis or not because both my female and male do this on occasion.
It\'s not dangerous, as long as it always goes back in.
CHeck the Care Sheets on this webpage for prolapse just in case it doesn\'t go back in.

y\'know, I never read anything about them reaching adolesence.......BUT, alot of ppl come on this board talking about this and the turtles are always the same age.
I think it must have something to do with it.

And don\'t worry, my lil boy turt does the exact same thing. It\'s like he\'s enjoying it..haha
